Iris Tiessens

Iris is director-owner of Mettaal. She started her business in 2001, because she noticed that there was a lack of first-class language services for the business market. Two years later, she took over Heesen Translation Services International, based in Amstelveen, thereby strengthening her position in the translation world. Before she became active in the translation industry, she worked for several other (international) companies. In addition to being an entrepreneur, Iris is also active in politics and the community.
Maaike van de Brug
Projectmanager & revisor/vertaler

Maaike started her career at the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences, where she graduated as a Dutch Sign Language Interpreter in 2012. After working in this field for a few years, this turned out not to be the right path for her. So, she enrolled on another language course to become an English translator. Half a year after graduating, she started working at Mettaal, where she is now learning the tricks of the trade. Maaike likes to sink her teeth into Dutch texts. Maaike is a sworn English-Dutch/Dutch-English translator
